The family of a world war 2 veteran is selling his medals in order to pay for his care. Wing Commander Bransome 'Branse' Burbridge was the RAF's most prolific night-fighter pilot of the war, claiming 21 enemy kills. Now aged 93, he is suffering from Alzheimer's disease and is in a private care home.
His son Paul, who lives in York, says the family is "reluctantly" selling the medals and old RAF flying jacket at auction, to raise £120,000 which will cover the cost of his care for the next six years, if necessary.
The sale comes as the Government confronts the challenge of how to pay for the rising cost of care for Britain's ageing population.
